The summer holidays are arguably the most wonderful time of the year: the days are longer, the air is warmer, work is (hopefully) slower and we’re afforded more time to spend with loved ones. It’s also a time to relish in little beauty rituals that are suited to the season: nourishing oils for salty skin, lightweight makeup buys and airy natural fragrance are just a few that come to mind.
So here I’ve curated a few of my current favourites — the products I’m packing for a well-overdue trip with family (all of which are The Green Edit-approved, of course). From skin to hair and everything in between, keep scrolling to shop my edit.
SO MUCH MORE THAN A TINTED BB CREAM!
Wotnot’s revolutionary new broad-spectrum sun cream (SPF 40) makes your daily skincare routine so easy.
This multi-purpose product works not only as your daily sun protection, but also as your BB cream, anti-aging serum, and mineral make-up too. Four products in one easy step, every day of your summer holiday and beyond! Rich in antioxidants, our zinc BB cream nourishes the skin and protects it from the damaging aging effects of the sun.
Rich in minerals and vitamin C, Eau De Rose refreshes and rejuvenates your skin, tightens and minimises pores and it’s natural anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties assist in reducing redness and eases irritations. It’s beautiful aroma can lift and brighten mood and ease tension.
Keep one in the fridge, handbag, gym bag, work desk and nightstand and mist liberally and often for dewy, glowing skin all summer long.
A rich Oil/Gel-to-Milk cleanser enriched with Ceramides, which melts away impurities, makeup and the day. This cleanser works as both a first cleanse on dry skin and a second cleanse on wet skin.
The most useful skincare assistant you didn't know you needed! Our Vela Days Cleansing Bands are a sustainable helper which prevent water dripping down your arms while cleansing your face at the basin. They also act as a reusable microfibre makeup remover. These cleansing bands help keep your bathroom counter and arms dry, for the most effortless clean.
GLOW from the inside out this summer. Formulated by one of Australia's leading naturopaths GLOWSO's unique formula uses ethically sourced properties of the indigenous Kakadu Plum and bioactive collagen peptides to help firm and smooth skin. Plus, powerful antioxidants from the Marigold flower - Lutein and Zeaxanthin - act as an internal shield to help protect skin from the harsh, damaging effects of UV and blue light. Added super charged nutrients like Zinc and Vitamin E, this powerful supplement radiates the beauty that starts from within.
Multitasking holiday essential - colour cream blush balms are perfect on cheeks and lips. This dynamite little pot of goodness features healthy plant-based ingredients like antioxidant-rich carrots to keeping skin soft, hydrated and adds a beautiful pop of colour when on holiday.
Balmy summer evenings call for floral notes of rose and geranium, this lightweight miracle worker sinks in immediately, bringing instant relief to dry, tight skin following a day in the sun. Skin feels velvety soft and smooth, while you feel calm and composed.
Solandis is the delicate flower—exquisite and ethereal. Embodying the feminine, it calls its wearer to feel led by the heart and channel a quiet inner strength. Honouring your beauty with some of the world’s most precious oils, the fragrance notes of this blend dance between exotic blooms and hints of musky, mellow woods.
A lightweight leave-in conditioner, ideal for curly hair, creates bounce, shine and volume, makes hair easy to comb and gently tames curls. It also contains hydrating, vitamin-rich Aloe Vera Juice, calming, antioxidant-rich Lemon Balm, and has a refreshing citrus fragrance thanks to Sicilian Mandarin, Sweet Orange and Lemon Oils.
mon huilette Scrub is a 100% organic exfoliating sugar scrub that detoxes, brightens and smoothes the roughest of skin. Massage onto dry skin before bathing or showering for a super exfoliation, or onto wet skin for a gentler approach. The balm texture emulsifies with water to leave a protective veil on the skin. Rinse off and pat dry.
Perfect for face and body, this physical sunscreen has only nine ingredients, including a form of zinc oxide that lessens the incidence of that dreaded ghostly white cast post-application. It’s loaded with coconut oil too, making it a great choice for anyone with dry skin.
